AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura’s fourth pay-per-view WWE Championship match of 2018 is now official.
Through a tweet from Shane McMahon, WWE announced the match for Money in the Bank this morning: “Every fan of these athletes is looking for a definitive winner, a CLEAR victor…so I am making it official: @AJStylesOrg vs @ShinsukeN for the @WWE Championship at #MITB. #SDLive”
Whether there will be a stipulation for the match hasn’t been confirmed yet. Their most recent meeting was a no disqualification match at Backlash, ending in a no contest when Styles and Nakamura kicked each other low at the same time and couldn’t get up before the referee’s 10 count.
Before that, Styles vs. Nakamura at the Greatest Royal Rumble, which followed up on Styles retaining the title and Nakamura turning heel at WrestleMania 34, ended in a double countout.
This is the third match announced for Money in the Bank, which will be held at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois on June 17th. The men’s and women’s Money in the Bank ladder matches will be taking place, with Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, The Miz, Rusev, Ember Moon, and Charlotte Flair having already qualified. The qualifiers will continue on this week’s Raw and SmackDown from London.
